No. The domain of a recursive definition
is an inductive set.

f(0)=(1)={{1},{1,1}}={{1}}

f(1)=(1,2)={{{{1}}},{{{1}},2}}

f(n)=(1,...,n+1)={{f(n-1)},{f(n-1),n+1}}

And, one can have a proof by induction whereby
the form of a recursive definition facilitates
the proof of the inductive step.

I am certain that one could find "inductive
definition" in the literature. However, it
confuses the relationships. One has inductive
sets, inductive proofs, and recursive definitions.
